Automated Student & Adult Learner Follow-Up

The Automated Student & Adult Learner Follow-Up is a report developed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. This is an Exit Cohort Report that tracks graduates as well as non-returning students in an academic year to the first semester of the next academic year to determine if the students are continuing their education at any public institution of higher education in the state of Texas. It also determines if a student is employed by matching against the Texas Workforce Commission Unemployment Insurance Wage-Record Database.
